Belfort’s most recent win is also the biggest of his career. Not only were the stakes high, as he was risking his shot at the middleweight title by taking on a light heavyweight, but Henderson is one of the finest fighters of this generation. Belfort went on to deliver the first knockout loss of Henderson’s career and only needed 77 seconds to do it. The finish was fantastic, showing that, despite criticism about Brazil once again serving as the backdrop for victory, Belfort is the man to beat right now at 185 pounds.
36-year old icon Vitor Belfort has been blasting opponents into orbit for more than fifteen years. The heavy-handed Brazilian’s latest example of sublime striking came this weekend at UFC Fight Night 32 where Belfort accomplished the previously unthinkable by stopping Dan Henderson with strikes. So where did the victory over “Hendo” stack up on Belfort’s all-time list of wins? (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
